Upper Canyon Outfitters is one of the few outfitters permitted in the Beaverhead National Forest to offer guided archery and rifle hunts for elk and mule deer, plus rifle-only hunts for whitetail deer, antelope, moose and mountain goat. From our basecamp on the edge of the National Forest, you’ll find game is plentiful and we encourage hunters to come prepared for a big game fair chase hunt. Youth hunts are also available. Limited hunts on a private ranch are available for an additional fee.
At Upper Canyon, we’re happy to take the hassle out of your hunting adventure by helping you apply for your Montana hunting licenses and special permits.
National Forest Elk / Mule Deer Hunts
Our guided National Forest hunts take place in the Snowcrest, Greenhorn, and Gravelly ranges on more than 800,000 acres of mountainous terrain. Each hunt pairs one of our UCO guides working together with two guests who will spend each day hunting resident herds. To ensure highest success, the majority of hunts are done by hiking. We also provide horses, four-wheel drive vehicles and ATVs when needed. For those who prefer to hunt one-on-one, upgrades are available.
We offer whitetail hunts on private ranches leased exclusively by Upper Canyon Outfitters. Many of our wild whitetail bucks are record-book candidates that we actively manage year-round. By limiting hunter access and the number of deer harvested every year, we accomplish a high success rate and ample opportunities for you to take home a large whitetail buck.
Upper Canyon Outfitters has been experiencing a growing population of antelope in our area, giving hunters wonderful opportunities to successfully harvest an antelope during their hunt. We use spot-and-stalk techniques along with some ground blinds for archery and rifle hunts. For those who love an extra rush of adrenaline with their hunt, we have also had proven success with antelope decoys as well.
Antelope / Elk / Mule Deer Combo Hunts
For hunters interested in elk, deer and antelope, we make it easy to add antelope to your 5-day / 6-night elk / deer combo hunt. You can add an antelope tag during archery with a 100% draw rate for a license or a 25% draw rate for a license during rifle season. Just ask for details.
Moose and Mountain Goat Hunts
For those who book our guided Elk / Deer trip, Moose is included at no additional fee. If you’d like to find out more about Moose and Mountain Goat Hunts, please contact us for details.
